up the second term, chuck. >> four years ago, enormous expectations for president obama. there were a lot of people, hope and change was big. this time, call it pragmatic hope as far as the public is concerned. as you see here, just less than 30% believe they're going to evaluate president obama with a clean fresh slate. 64% will evaluate him based on past feelings. and here, a continuation of a trend we saw throughout the first term. very similar to what ronald reagan dealt with during his eight years. personally, the public really likes president obama. 74%. but his policies, again, more people disapprove of the policies. 49%, than approve of them there, at 47%. so what about the next four years? sort of a mixed optimism, if you will. i go back to the idea of pragmatic hope. 43% optimistic. 43% pessimistic. 22% kind of mixed. and staying with the theme of word clouds, david, we asked folks to send a message to president obama. what would they like to say for his second term? and as you can see here, look at the most popular phrases. a lot of them have to do with the economy. fix t
obama will be administered the oath of office. this will be done for years ago and his son traditionally by supreme court justice john roberts and there will be to god who sees this time. first is the the lincoln bible used by the president four years ago for initial screen and the same bible used by president lincoln when he was sworn in the first time in 1861 and that will be on top of the king family bible graciously provided for the ceremony by the king family. sees me. kelley clarkson will then see my country to sedate before poet public reacher blinker reads a poem written specifically for this occasion. we are very excited he will be joining us. he's the youngest ever and not drool appellate, and the first latino to not hero poet. barbara lewis liana st. john's church here in mafia part will be overseen the traditional st. john's service to kickstart the the presidents' day on monday offered the benediction in the ceremony will end with beyond anything in the nationally and done. one quick thing on the bibles. these are very, very historic rivals and symbolic typos as we head into
was not a balanced approach. >> it's about time they gave a little bit of something because they haven't given obama anything for four years. >> he got it. >> the reality of it is the republicans will have to come down and be serious and not just protect wealthy people and come up with some proposals and the president has got to come up with proposals, i haven't seen it on any side. martha: i agree with you and i asked steve king about that moments ago. you've got to come up with ideas, lay it out so the people can decide which side they like, what they agree with. theyer getting no meat in either of these. >> to get beat up i on the tphaort of the house by republicans in a motion vicious way. >> come on. >> you just did it. what are you talking about? you guys can never say anything nice about this guy, i don't know why. he's president of the united states, say one thing nice. martha: i'm getting very lonely at the white house and i think you guys should come over and play to card. thank you box, thank you mary catherine. bill: tanteros got a radio show, shys unavailable. reroll in mary katherine h
in november. and as someone who participated in the inaugural for president obama four years ago and we had absolutely no idea what we were doing, i can tell you that the folks at the jsic regardless of who the chair is and the folks at jtf are there ready for you when you walk in the door and really do a lot of the logistical lift on this. it's really more our job just to make sure the president ice kind of imprint is put on some of these events. one of the ways we do that is in the parade, as the colonel mentioned, along with all these military elements there are 58 different groups, 58 different groups, floats and vehicles. these are from all 50 states. they are everything from the virginia military institute just across the river in virginia down in southern virginia which has marched in a number of inaugural parades all the way through a group, one of my favorites, a group from maine of unicyclists that will be joining us. i believe they are called -- let me get the name right -- the jim dandies, the jim, of course, being spelled g-y-m in this case. the president will stand and watch t
, six years, even before he endorsed barack obama the first time, i would get attacked for associating with colin powell's very conservative with a small "c" realist approach that republican presidents followed for years. it was the weinberger doctrine. it was the reagan doctrine. it was the powell doctrine. and suddenly, it became the doctrine of lefties? >> colin powell is a self-identified republican and has been for many, many years. and with each passing year, with each passing election cycle, the republican party, too many within the republican party, try to further estrange him from the republican party platform, from much of what is said publicly by a lot of republicans. colin powell is also a guy who has the ability and the belief that a lot of republicans -- not a lot -- but too many republicans and too many democrats don't have, he has the ability and the belief to put country ahead of party. and that's unfortunately something that's passe in washington. >> the problem, leigh, though is there are, you know, we're here in new york. or washington or boston or l.a. and the conv
scene. >>> an embarrassing for president obama's jobs council. it has been one year since it held an official meeting. the council will expire at the end of the month unless the president extends it. no comments from the white house on why the council hasn't met in so long. >>> manti te'o staying silent about the dead girlfriend hoax. he cruised by the cameras at the training facility in florida. notre dame says it learned it was a hoax december 6. two days later he was still talking about her death. meantime an unedited transcript of an interview he did shows te'o having a hard time answering simple questions like how they met. multiple reports identify the fake girlfriend as a 23-year-old marketing coordinator from california. >>brian: there is something sweeping the headlining. you know what tebowing is? this is called te'o-ing. >>brian: this other guy took a picture of him looking at an empty shower and says look at my girlfriend naked in the shower. >>gretchen: if it wasn't so sad, it would all be hysterical. >>brian: i don't know how sad it is. she's not dead because she nev
everything else that president obama has said for four years about his view of the muslim world and the war on terror, that they are much safer, much more likely to decide to use force to take hostages than in previous years. and i think we're seeing the evidence of it right now. martha: yeah. president obama was emphatic about the fact that he suggested this would be done, those killers would be tracked down from the benghazi raid that killed four americans. that has not happened. as we pointed out. your mind goes back to other events in the past in terms of retaliation like the uss cole for example. like the bombing at the world trade center in 1993 which we know was followed the up, you said it many times on this program, you know, they have got a lot of patience and they have a lot of time f they feel there is an opening and a window, al qaeda proved to us time and time again they will continue to strike. >> that's why this attack on a natural gas facility in algeria is significant. this is a direct attack on a critical element of algeria's economy. i think as bill said a moment ago, th
president obama, my name is julia. i'm an 11-year-old who lives here in d.c. there are no words to explain how sad i am about the school shooting. even though i'm not scared for my safety, i'm scared for others. i have four brothers and sisters and i know i would not be able to bear the thought of losing any of them. i may not be that into politics, but my opinion is it should be very hard for people to buy guns. the only thing they do is harm or kill and guns should only be in the most horrible event, where others will get hurt if they are not. i know that laws have to be passed by congress, but i beg you to try very hard to make guns not allowed, not just for me, but the whole united states. my love and regrets, julia. >> that's a very thoughtful letter, julia. why did you decide to sit down and write it? >> well, i was overwhelmed with sadness about the school shooting and knew as one person i couldn't do anything, but i knew that president obama could. so i decided to write this letter hoping that at least he would read it and think of doing something. >> theo, you're the dad. did you
from 10-year-old kijah from fworge ga. asking mr. obama to stop gun violence. a number of those children will join the president on stage today. bill: we're awaiting the headlines, wendell. what is the expectation? what will be the proposal from the president? >> reporter: here a combination of proposals, bill. some for congress. some measures the government can take on its own. the president will announce a crackdown on people that lie on background checks. tougher penalties for gun traffickers. better distribution of mental health records. he will ask lawmakers to pass legislation requiring universal background checks and banning assault weapons and high-capacity magazines where republican congressman bob goodlatte of west virgina suggests he will run into opposition. >> this is a very important constitutional right. we're dedicated to protecting the second amendment from that standpoint. what we want to focus on are ways to make sure that people with serious mental difficulties are kept away from firearms. >> reporter: even democrats saying the assault weapons ban in particul
reasons. but it's interesting to note in the last 90 years, out of the 11 times that the budget from the president has been late, four of those 11 have been under the obama administration. we're also informed that there is a chance once again, like there was a year and a half ago, that our credit rating of the u.s. could be lowered again. by another credit rating agency. some have tried to paint it as a different story, different picture, but for those of us who recall what happened, s&p made it clear that they didn't believe that the united states was serious about dealing with this dramatic spending problem, overspending problem. where we were spending $1.5 billion, $1.6 trillion, over $1 trillion more than the $2-plus trillion that we had coming in. and that if we didn't at least reduce the massive overspending annually by at least $400,000 -- $400 billion, rather, for 10 years, a total of $4 trillion over a 10-year period, then it would make it pretty clear that we were not serious about dealing with our debt. i know the obama administration went on the warpath after s&p, after t
year. then president obama proposal on gun violence. after that, the house democratic committee hold a meeting on how to address a gun violence. >> wednesday, more about protecting gun violence from the conference of mayors. live coverage starts at 12:30 p.m. eastern here on c-span. at 6:30 p.m., talk-show host tavis smiley host a forum on poverty. we will bring it to you live also here on c-span. >> why did you write a book about your experience? >> it was an important time in history. i felt that the fdic perspective should be brought their. there have been some other items of the crisis that have not been crisiaccurate. also, currently, for people to understand that there were difficult situations, a different policy options and disagreements, and if we want to prevent this crisis or another crisis from happening again, i felt that the public needed to engage more on financial reform, take a bigger interest in that, and educate themselves better. i tried very hard to make the book accessible and have some policy recommendations at the end for people to look at seriously. >> the fo
are killed with guns. president obama will take the oath of office, and during those 0our years, some 4800 americans will be killed with guns. twice as many people as were killed in combat in the vietnam war. i have made it clear our has threesan coalition requiring legislation and four calling for executive action and i hope they will support all seven. first and most urgently -- we need the presidenet and congress congress to require background checks at gun sales and online. private sales account for 40% of gun sales nationally. there were more than 6 million gun sales that happened with no background checks. many of these are handguns, used in 90% of all firearms murders. across the united states, 80% or ofgun owners and 90% americans require gubackground checks for gun sales. we have laws on the books requiring background checks when dealers sell guns. it is time for the president and congress to make this the law of the land. 40% that the law does not apply to is a sham. and congress should make gun trafficking a federal crime. 80% of the guns we find at crime scenes are from out of
the obama administration there's actually been great leaps forward in terms of transactional use of the internet. people file their taxes online. this goes off year after year with relatively to problems. you know -- no problems. you know, this has actually been, those two things have been good advantages. i think the major failing over the last 20 years, and it really goes even back beyond that, is that because we were in a sort of anti-government mode for much of that time and we had at least until the last election a very ascendant conservative feeling in the country, we started to do government not through government. and i think what my two colleagues here are reflecting is that we began to implement policy through regulation and through the tax system. as opposed to taking on policy head on. so your example, phil, about the congo, okay? look, clearly that place is a mess. clearly -- >> uh-huh. no argument. [laughter] >> every good intention people in the congress wanted to make a stance. but doing it that way? as opposed through a more direct, straight-on, diplomatic endeav

're telling me that he doesn't intend to take anybody's firearms? when in four years you're going to see the fall of the obama nation. and that's what it is. an obama nation. i've never seen a more arrogant president than the one we have now. host: and we will take this. did you want to respond? guest: briefly, i mean, i think that it's important to know that, first of all, president has been clear about what he wants to do and it does not involve confiscation. it involves the sensible forms that he outlined yesterday. but also we have a supreme court in this country and the supreme court held that there is a second amendment right of law-abiding citizens to have a gun in the open for self-defense and that whatever your fears are about what congress could do, what any president, this or any other president could do, that second amendment governs and so that should put your fears at rest. host: this is a magazine that came up with a series of recent ads for guns and her was one for a bush master. consider your man card reissued. in the brady center's viewpoint, should there be restriction
. >>> also, president obama ready to present his new gun control agenda today, called the most aggressive and expansive proposal in years. how will congress react to it? this morning we talk with illinois congresswoman tammy duckworth and virginia congressman randy forbes. and less of a priority in public schools across the nation, but what is happening to get kids passionate about music that will change their lives. i'm hanging out with swiss beats this morning. what are you guys doing? >> i love it. >>> when you take the family out to a popular restaurant, do you know how many calories in the popular dishes you and the kids are eating? some calories are eye popping. elizabeth cohen in atlanta this morning. good morning, elizabeth. >> good morning, christine. >> making me hungry and not hungry, at the same time. how many calories are we talking about here? >> we're talking in one meal, more calories than are you supposed to get in an entire day by quite a lot. and one of the things i found kind of surprising. we know fast food has a lot of calories, but these are nice restaurants, where

and registered on public roles. for all the controversy over president obama's health care mandate, they have got so much attention in june of last year, the founding fathers in 1792 pass a law requiring every free citizen, free mail between the ages of 18 and 45 to outfit themselves with a rifle. a military style musket for -- capable of serving in the militias. the founding fathers did not view the second amendment as a basis for insurrection. rather, they viewed it as part of a well-regulated militia. >> thank you. >> i was wondering if you could talk a little bit about whether in the publication you might be able to stress i or break out likely voters. just thinking about polls that people are paying attention. also 2 likely voters and also by state or region of the country. >> those are good questions. survey firms have algorithms that allow them to break out motors. for this purpose we care about the views of all americans and so we wanted to report the rates of support among americans, broadly speaking. we did not ask that likely voter battery to subset the data. there are other important
